Steam's Greenlight service opens up a ton of opportunities for all sorts of games we would otherwise never have known about with it. One such game is called Evoland from Shiro Games. The title takes players on a transitional adventure through the evolutionary phases of video game interactivity, starting with greenish 8-bit graphics and gameplay from the NES era and working its way up to the 64-bit era of the N64.

The name reflects the evolution from the old-school to the new-school, as players will unlock new features and content as they progress through the game that continually changes, making it almost multiple games in one. Check it out in the trailer below.

I have to admit that the game really is striking. Unlocking 16-bit color display is pretty awesome and it's not just the retro-feel to the game's design that looks so enticing, it's the actual design of the game's world and aesthetic that looks so darn engaging. A lot of games mimic retro designs but the actual gameplay doesn't always mirror the same feeling of adventure or intrigue as the aesthetic, but in this case Evoland looks to be as fun with its game mechanics as it is visually engaging.

If you've been itching for a Legend of Zelda style game that takes on a completely different direction with the way the game is played and the way the story evolves, then you'll probably want to keep an eye on Evoland, and give the game an upvote and favorite over on the official Steam Greenlight page.
